Merlot

Cabernet Sauvignon’s perfect match! A somewhat unappreciated superstar black grape, Merlot is excellent as a blending partner, as well as a stand-alone varietal. Offering luscious, often plum, smokey or chocolatey flavors, and a full body, Merlot can achieve great richness. This luxuriousness is what allows Merlot and Cabernet to blend so well. You can often find Merlot in a Bordeaux blend, but with the right hands, it can be shaped into a really exciting varietal.

“Every time you add something, you take something away from the character of the wine and what you are left with is an expressionless, boring wine.”

Jordy grew up in the Mornington Peninsula of Australia and started working in vineyards at the age of 15. By 16 he was running tasting rooms and by 17 he had dropped out of high school and moved to Europe to become a winemaker. Jordy focuses on making natural, minimal intervention wine. He feels like “every time you add something, you take something away from the character of the wine and what you are left with is an expressionless, boring wine.”
